Battle Creek, Michigan to Lima, Ohio

We are making up a post today, so we will actually have another road trip later. This was to have been put together on Saturday, but was moved because of the 4th of July. It’s just a few hours between the two cities and a grand total of 161 miles, giving us an average speed of 59mph. We have another quick trip later, so lets get this shorty out of the way!

Battle Creek
For as short as this trip is, it will be pretty adventurous. A strong trough moving through the Great Lakes is forecast to arrive in Michigan and Ohio by tomorrow morning. The heaviest of the thunderstorms are universally forecast to be in northeast Indiana around the time we pass through the region, and then following us into northwest Ohio. Taking a composite of the most widely respected models, heavy rain will be possible south from Coldwater, Michigan, and the chance increases around US-6 in Indiana. The quick drive around Fort Wayne looks like it will be the best shot at severe weather, though frankly, some early afternoon severity will be possible all the way from Battle Creek to Lima.
